When Harry met Sally...

Was going thro - when harry met sally's script. Nice one, its listed in the top ten romantic movies list (viewer rating). I notice that I like some movies as scripts better. This was one such. After reading the script I felt that the visual version didnt do justice to the script.The characterisations of the protoganists were excellent. Especially Harrys'. You'd get reminded of your own inconsistensies. 'Hum Tum' was made scene by scene over this movie, they did bring it out as a nice Indian version though, what with saif at his humorous best.

The dialogues in the movie were excellent (probably that's why I didn't like the visual version, I miss most of the dialogues in an english movie). Particulary during the scene when they first meet, the way Harry puts himself forward as a negative person. "Harry's reading the last page of a book first" explaination's. All fundu.

One dialogue to quote " And I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible". fanal that brings the climax and quiet correctly. The dialogue's simple, direct and stuffed with the emotion it is conveying. Great dialogue to make the climax crisp. Couldn't help but rave at the time these people get to make movies. It shows in their output. Probably, our movies will also be this good if we are given the time. Hmmm..
